The theatre - lovely little 1930's theatre, on an acute corner. Really welcoming. Imagine a sweet little theatre in a movie, this is it. A pleasure, except of course the fact that air con was not a consideration in its design nor possible to retro fit. In early July on a warm but not really hot Saturday night it was... More

Matilda was our birthday treat of choice for our daughter last weekend. Fabulous from start to finish, third row from the front in the stalls, amazing seats, pleasant staff and superb location in Central London. This is probably the best musical we have been to see and hats off to the young stars performing, what an excellent show. Lovely quaint... More

I am disabled, and I was going on a trip to see Matilda and as soon as we got there, we asked where the lift was to get to the Upper Circle, and they said there r only flights of stairs! So i had to walk up several flights of stairs! When I finally got up to the Upper Circle,... More

Visited this theatre to see Matilda the Musical and enjoyed every minute. The theatre itself is in a good location. The production was excellent and the stage a masterpiece! We were in the stalls in row J and had a brilliant view. The atmosphere was wonderful and I would love to visit this theatre in the future again.

Lovely old theatre where the staff can't do enough to look after you. The show was "Matilda". A fabulous production for all ages.

We went with a group of school children to see Matilda. We arrived in reasonable time and were told we would have a slight wait as there was another large group of school children just being taken in. The wait was not very long, so well done, and we got taken up the back stairs so we could get taken... More

The theatre is fairly easy to find and has great staff. The bar areas and toilets are small and fill up quickly so I don't recommend hanging around. The theatre itself is large and seats on the upper circle do feel very far away from the stage. Side views are also fairly restrictive but not enough to be a worry.... More
